Zikpak village in Kafanchan Jama’a local government area of Kaduna State had it own share of the ongoing herdsmen onslaught in Southern Kaduna on Friday night.
At about 8 pm last night locals began distress calls after heavily armed herdsmen invaded their communities shooting sporadically making locals to flee for safety.
TheNewsGuru.com, TNG gathered that security operatives in the area swung into action and were able to scare the attackers away. But it was discovered Saturday morning that a total of seven persons lost their lives while two persons got injured in the attack.
There has been a resurgence of herdsmen attack in southern Kaduna Villages in the last four weeks.
Meanwhile, Governor Nasir El-Rufai has said communal crises persist in the Christian dominated southern part of the state because criminal activities are given ethnic and religious colouration.
